Australiasecured a nail biting 2 wicket victory against Pakistan to book their place in the Semi Finals of the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa.
Australia had restricted Pakistan to just 205-6 from their 50 overs and at half time they would have been very confident of securing an easy victory.
Indeed at 140-2 Australia appeared to be on course for victory but they lost a flurry of wickets, due to some great bowling from Mohammed Asif and Rana Naved, however in the end Brett Lee and Nathan Hauritz held their nerve as Australia sealed a 2 wickets victory off the last ball of the game.
Australia's victory means that they have topped their group and will play England in the Semi Finals on Friday.
Pakistan will take on New Zealand in the other Semi Final on Saturday Pakistan will take on New Zealand in the other Semi Final on Saturday. Australia have been playing some very good One Day Cricket in recent times having beaten England 6-1 2 weeks ago and it is hard to see England upsetting the Betting Oddsand beating Australia.
